I am having camera problems. I have a Canon Rebel XT. Just XT, nothing special. I have 2 memory cards. SanDisk Extreme III 8 and 2gb. I shoot in RAW. The last series of photos are having issues on the computer. I have Photoshop CS. These photos won't open in CS. Okay, I can deal with the idea that CS is too old to read the Rebels RAW format. I even downloaded the .DNG converter program. I can convert the pics to .jpg through the EOS Digital Professional that came with the camera. This is not the big problem.

The big problem is my camera will not read my memory cards; either of them. I get CF Error every time I try to load either of them. I don't know if this issue is with the camera or the cards. If I hook up the camera to the computer directly, it photographs fine. I can download pics off the cards to the computer then convert them fine. Together, the cards and camera do not work. If it is just the cards, I can scrounge up enough to buy a small card for now. If it is something with the camera itself, that is a whole other bushel of potatoes.

Anyone have any ideas?

I have been loaned till saturday evening, a digital camera and lens that originally cost over $3000. It is 12 mega pixels, I believe. It belongs to my friends father, who works for the Associated Press. This makes me very nervous. I should have said "No" but couldn't. Yet, I will probably be too paranoid to take it out of the house.
And just too add a bit of adventure to it all, I had to get it home all the way from the Mt. Diablo area. In the blustery rain. With a broken umbrella. The camera and I made it home safe and sound, though I did discover a very large crack across the bottom of my shoe.

On a similar note, a friend of mine, Patrick, had his $2000 digital camera stolen from his checked bag while flying Jet Blue. My friend Ton, a pilot, confirmed that baggage handlers are notorious thieves. While Jet Blue is trying to make amends (Ton also confirms that Jet Blue has one of the best reputations for trying to make amends to inconvenienced customers), his baby is still gone along with literally thousands of photographs. Having had a similar experience when my much less valuable, yet just as dear, camera was stolen with a roll of film still in it last august, he has my utmost sympathy. Poor boy.
Lesson learned? Don't check valuables and always lock your suitcases when traveling!

Miss [livejournal.com profile] livid, Ed is currently working on a newer, better production of Miss Melancholy Fae's song, and she has a myspace - http://www.myspace.com/melancholyfae, though the song does not seem to be on it. Just thought you might want to know.
